U.S. looking to sell old military hardware

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. officials say the country is looking to sell or dispose of billions of dollars in military hardware, including sophisticated and highly specialized mine resistant vehicles, as it packs up to leave Afghanistan after 13 years of war, according to the Associated Press.

Finding a buyer is complicated in a region where relations between neighboring countries are mired in suspicion and outright hostility.

A statement Monday, March 31, issued by the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan says Islamabad is interested in buying used U.S. equipment. The statement said Pakistan's request is being reviewed but any equipment it receives, including the coveted mine resistant vehicles, will not likely come from its often angry neighbor Afghanistan.

An earlier U.S. Forces statement was definite: Pakistan would not get any U.S. equipment being sold out of Afghanistan.
